you’ve got to go: This theme park combines hands-on fun with rides of all types. Fun themed sections like Ninjango, Star Wars, and Merlin are a hit with parents and kids alike. Since many statues and attractions are created entirely by Legos, it’s also a feast for the imagination.
What to do: Go on fun rides like the Safari Trek, Technicycle, The Dragon, and the DUPLO Train. Kids can learn how to drive (and even get a miniature license) at the Ford Driving school, Boating School, and Ford Jr. Driving School. Build all types of creations, dine out at one of the many restaurants, and venture over to the waterpark if the sun is shining.
Get there when kids are: From 4 to 10 years old
